It's so dark in my house. I don't know if this photo does it justice! Ha.

I loved this book as a kid so I thought for my Grassroots Christmas I'd gift it to my nephew. I felt kind of cheap about only giving him a hand-me-down book so I made him a Dracula doll like the one Robert carries around in the story. Now he can pretend he's sneaking around Frankenstein's basement too!
Never underestimate the wonders of felt. The head is cotton fabric that I hand-painted with acrylic. I used polyfill for his body and wire for his limbs.
I had such a great time making him! Definitely anticipate some of his friends making their felt debuts soon! I'm thinking Frankenstein's bride...
